University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for February 2021:

Classic:
. . .
it is especially dangerous to enslave men in the minor details of life. For my own part, I should be inclined to think freedom less necessary in great things than in little ones. . . .
— Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1835.

 

Direct:
Only when people have the chance to leave their personal marks upon their private lives do they feel enough pride to leave their respective marks upon collective publlic life.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 184.

Garden moment for February 2021:

Winter view of my favourite tree in Niagara, an acacia or honey locust (Gleditsia triacanthos) still growing from one of the "seeds of liberty" planted in 1824 by William Lyon Mackenzie in front of his printery in Queenston. Mackenzie's writing and agitation helped lay the foundation of democracy in Canada.
